Went back to sleep.
I have a confession to make, I like to sleep late. I've never been a morning person, bit of a night owl actually. A habit I picked up from many night shifts in the Air Force and not a few at my current civilian gig. Truth be told, I haven't worked a night shift now in quite a few years, probably a decade. Still and all, I enjoy the night.
Okay, maybe not that much, but it's calm and peaceful when the darkness cloaks the land.
So, where was I, oh yes, 8 AM, back to sleep, woke up at 10:45. Yes, 10:45, which is a bit too late for me. But in my defense it's been a long sleepless week, Tuesday night I was up until past midnight picking up The Missus Herself upon her triumphant return from California. Then up at 6 AM for a fun-filled (not) day at work.
So on weekends I catch up on my sleep. Yesterday, you might surmise, was my Friday off. I get those every other week. While the nine hour days can be tiresome, the three day weekends make up for it.
So arose late, coffee and a bagel, shave and a shower, then off to get a haircut.
It surprised me that I shaved on Friday, normally I don't, but Friday was hot and humid and needing a shave on a hot and humid day is not something I care for. So today (as you're reading this) I won't shave. Maybe.
So the haircut was needed, I was looking a bit shaggy. Okay, a lot shaggy. I get my hair cut roughly every three months. (Okay, I don't get it cut roughly, like with garden shears, but roughly as in approximately. Sure I could have reworded that sentence rather than explain it, but hey, it's my blog, innit?) Back in my Air Force days it was more like once every three weeks. So it's a bit of a luxury to go three months.
After the haircut it was off to purchase cat food. My local grocery emporium used to stock their brand, then they decided not to anymore. Comrade Misfit suggested using Amazon to bring their food right to my door. Hhmm, I liked the idea, then I saw the price.
The vendors on Amazon want three times the amount for what I pay locally. Even if it does mean driving ten miles to Walmart. Which is an adventure all to itself.
Those videos you see on YouTube, the people of Walmart? Well, they're not entirely accurate, but damned close. I swear I'm invisible in that place, I had at least three people try to run me over with their shopping carts.
And speaking of shopping carts, that opening photo, I see that all the time. Read the comments at the link under the photo. Expressed my thoughts on that topic pretty well I thought.
That and people parking in the fire lane as "I'm just going in to grab one thing!"
Best one I've seen yet is the end of the parking aisle, there's space there but it's marked off as obvious "NO PARKING." Yet, there's always some idiot parked there.
One time I went to the store and this guy comes roaring into the parking lot and zoom, right into the NO PARKING zone. Steps out of his car and lo and behold, it's a big shot from where I work. Was I pissed? Yes. Was I surprised? No. Remember, I live in a state with a butt ton of progressives and they're all special and they're all entitled.
Yes, a very exciting day. Spent the evening watching episodes of The Sopranos. Yes, I've seen it before but it's time to watch it again.
I have them from time to time. No, Friday wasn't really exciting. I was being ironic. Or something...
